“Oh yes it is!” Professor Dan presents a colourful, traditional show that will have his audience enraptured and excited with his fast paced live show full of comedy and participation. All children will love the adventures of Mr Punch and don’t forget the Crocodile!
Professor Dan is one of the UK’s youngest Punch and Judy Professors, he was awarded Most Promising Young Professor in 2010 by the Punch and Judy Fellowship, but his youth belies his experience – his traditional show, suitable for outdoor or indoor shows is great for parties, fetes, school shows and festivals. It’s packed with audience participation and fun. Dan is completely self-contained with his own sound system.
Each show lasts around 30 minutes and no two shows are ever the same.
“That’s the way to do it!”
Professor Dan has a children’s magic show and party package with games and balloons that can complement the Punch and Judy or be a performance on its own.
Dan has a demonstration and talk ideal for schools and groups. Punch is over 350 years old, Dan’s show remains true to the art which dates back to 1662 but with a modern twist which adults can relate to as much as the children. Mr Punch is still going as strong as ever; originally performed on the street, then with the invention of the steam train at the seaside - and now Dan is seen at events all over the place from festivals and steam fairs to town centres and parties.
Superb children’s entertainment at children’s parties, schools shows, fetes, gala’s, outdoor events, store promotions and fun days...
